I agree, very impressive.

Am I correct to assume that is for the family farm?

Thanks, CRG for posting that. I've been too busy for the past week.

He's right, this is what I do for fun. The trade association I work for puts on an annual equipment exposition, and I'm in charge of the freight handling. This is one of the five machines (the one I use, since I'm the boss) that we use to unload the equipment on display. Nothing to do with the family tree farm, exactly. The show ended today and we just got through loading most of the outbound freight, so I'll have some free time over the next week for an update. I'm doing OK, but obviously, undergoing lots of maintenance lately, including 5 SBRT treatments last week in NYC. Then up to Maine to do the show. Busy guy. Too busy to be sick.

Well gee "crap", that blew my next line. I'm from Montana. Been in many columbines thru the years, (big machines used to extract the wheat from the plant). Legal disclamer, with me, machine is in off position, me being passenger only. Butt . . . I've pulled much rye from wheat plants thru the years: back bending work as a high school student. Butt my dear "younger" brother operated these machines for a few years. Been there done that, butt . . .

With your machine, I was ready to jump in, "butt I'm family here . . . , been in many of these machine thru the years " behind the wheels, OF COURSE. I know what I'm doing here." As Julie put it,

And AFTER I bail the like of "you" ( &Julie) out, do you really think that nice police officer will let me within 100ft of that forklift.

No way, ain't gonna happen. :mrgreen:

Guess I will just have to settle for some brew at the pub at it new location :shock: (& I'm not a beer drinker)

Oh well, maybe next time. :roll:

So, does this mean that there might be another Colon Club party, this time at Eric's place?

BTW, what ever happened to the First Annual Colon Club Barbecue party? (I think it was planned for Atlanta -- or maybe for the capital of Texas -- but I didn't put it on my calendar because I was out of the country at the time.)

And what about the Colon Club party planned for BS's driveway? Did it ever take place?
CRguy wrote:... We ALL camp out @ BS's place and gamble like it's 1999 !!! :shock:
... SO = ROAD TRIP to BS's ...
PARTY @ BS's driveway... !

It seems to me that it's about time to start planning for the Fourth Annual Colon Club Barbecue. How about having it on August 21st -- in BS's driveway (provided BS approves). It would be awesome.

I don't know the exact GPS coordinates of BS's driveway, but I think it must be somewhere around the path of the August 21st total eclipse of the sun. We can verify if BS's driveway will be in the path of the eclipse by checking the following website: http://www.eclipse2017.org/2017/states/OR.htm
